The Tester’s Experience of Using Test Automation Tools: is it problematic? And why?
For many years test automation and test tools – for test execution, test management, and to support other test activities and many test types have been presented as the solution to speed, quality, cost and other project stumbling blocks. Yet, the implementation and successful use of tools is reported to be problematic. Do we know whether there is a problem, or how large or costly tool implementation really is? Isabel Evans has started a research project to investigate whether UX methods can be applied to test tools, and if they can, what this tells us about the state of the industry in regard to tools/automation, the causes and size of any shelfware problems, and possible solutions. In this webinar, Isabel shares what she has done so far, suggests how UX methods might help a tools implementation project, and requests your help and feedback to fuel her research.
- A UX method that can be applied to tool selection and assessment
- A chance to contribute to the research and our understanding of the test communities experiences of tool usage.
